I eat quite a bit of pasta but have been starting to get a bit bored of it so I thought I'd have a change and get this Wholewheat Fusilli from Sainsburys. It was £1.37 for a 1kg bag and that's about the same as white pasta so it makes sense to try this wholewheat one. It's a bit darker looking than white pasta but I still wouldn't call it brown and when you cook it it goes a bit lighter again and doesn't look all that different from the normal white fusilli I have. The spirals swell out nice while the pasta is cooking and it deffo smells different to white pasta, they take about 10 mins to cook and you just have to pour your pasta sauce or whatever on top to ...

I absolutely adore pasta and at the moment I'm on a health kick so I decided to try wholewheat pasta for a change! Being such a white pasta fan I wasn't looking forward to this but at 74p a bag I thought it would be worth a go! The Packaging.... Brown and white sections of colour are the otherwise clear plastic bag and on that there is a drawing on the pasta and then I'm told it is Sainsbury's wholewheat fusilli 'made from 100% durum wheat perfect with broccoli sauce' and the size is stated (500g in this case), I'm told it is Vegetarian & Vegan, is made in Italy, takes 13 minutes to cook and the best before date is clearly stamped on too. Other ... Read the complete review

Wholewheat Pasta should be in every house holds cupboards, even more so now given the current economic climate! Its high in fibre and full of complex carbohydrate which gives it a low rating on the GI(glyycaemic index) essentially meaning it keeps you fuller for longer. Not only is it nutritionally sound it is also very affordable. You can pick up a 500g bag from sainsburys.com for 70p which at 125g per serving works out at 17.5p per portion. I am aware that you can buy the sainsbury's basics for 43p per 500g but the wholewheat version packs over 2.5 times the amount of fibre, less calories and carbs per serving. Making it the far more nutritious alternative. ... Read the complete review

I am a very big fan of pasta in general as I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle. I have recently started using wholewheat pasta instead of normal pasta. The best thing about wholewheat is that it is a healthier alternative to normal pasta. The general population think any type of pasta is good for you, correct its a great source of carbohydrate but too much can lead to excess body fat. Wholewheat pasta is a lot more appealing as it has a low GI when means the body breaks it down slower than a high GI food, this can result in a sustained energy fix. You can buy this pasta in 500g bags from your local sainsbury store for about 80p, you ... Read the complete review

On a recent trip to the supermarket, we picked this up instead of the usual white pasta. I was a bit sceptical at first as I'd never tasted wholewheat pasta before and wasn't sure if I'd like it but I was pleasantly surprised. ***What it looks like*** I won't go into much detail as you can get a good idea from the above product image. In short, it's quite a bit darker in colour than your typical white pasta and is the swirly/spiral kind. Once it's cooked, it seems to go slightly lighter but it's still darker than the white pasta that I'm more used to it. ***Cooking it*** The instructions suggest cooking it for 11-13 minutes and I usually ...
